I went through my untried polishes and found a pretty mint lacquer. This made me think of Moroccan mint tea. So I decided to make a Moroccan mint tea inspired mani with a lemon pattern on the middle finger, a Moroccan design on the ring finger and some (mint) leaves on the other nails.

To achieve it, I used Mint 2 Be (Icing). This is a mint green creme that was opaque after only one coat but I used 2 coats in order to even everything out. Application was really good and flawless. The brush is rather wide so that it's easy to work with
This lovely polish has been sitting in my untried for about 1 year! I always thought I did not really like this kind of shade but oh my I was so wrong! I like it so much now! It gives a breath of fresh air on your nails!
Here is a picture of Mint 2 Be alone. This was 2 coats, without top coat, and with flash (color accurate).
For the design, I used 102 Catch Me (Klean Color) which is a medium green creme, and BM 21, 04, 06.
